Where can a 17-year-old pregnant girl go to marry the baby's father who is also 17 without parental consent?
Nowhere in the United States. However, as soon as they both turn 18, they will be able to get married. I believe you could get married in Georgia, but if it would be recognized in the state you live in I do not know! get a hold of the juvanile courthouse in your county and make an appointment te…ll them your situation. I am 16 and pregnant and my boyfriend who is the father is also 16 and we actually have an appointment to talk to a administrator so that we can get married without parental consent . Most states a judge will waiver the parental consent since your pregnant, just as long as you can prove that you can financially and emotionally handle a marriage and still care for your child as if you were over 18 because once your married your also emancipated and on your own its hard but if you go through the right steps and if you feel its the best thing for you two and your child then im sure theyll grant you what your asking :) good luck ;) You can get married in 3 states: Georgia, Florida, and Kentucky. But in all states you need a written statement from a legall psycitrist stating that you are pregnant. But in the state of Kentucky, you need to live there or have residents who live there in order to get married. There is not waiting period in Georgia or Florida, but in Kentucky there is a 3 day waiting period. The cost for a marriage licesene in Kentucky is 30-35 dollars, in Florida it is 88.50, and in Georgia it is 26-30 dollars. (MORE)

Answer: . John Dickens was briefly imprisoned at Marshalsea Debtors Prison, having spent beyond his means on lavish entertainment. He and his wife were both chronically improvident and all their life together was spent either squandering or scraping for money..
You really can't from a legal perspective. But you can go a long way toward regaining credibility and respect if you step up to your responsibilities to her. Sit down and talk about the options, and then follow through on what you agree to.
you have a lot to deal with so start off by taking care of yourself phsyically and emotionally. Look locally for help and hopefully your parents, while upset, will be supportive.

I find the question somewhat confusing, but... Underage *generally* refers to someone who is under the age of majority, which is 18 in the US. Pregnancy has no effect on the age of majority. A 17-year-old is underage. A pregnant 17-year-old is still underage.
Yes, the adult can go to jail. The term "underage" refers to the fact that the person is under the legal age to make decisions. This includes the decision to have sex. That means that if you have sex with her and she "consents" her consent is not valid because she is considered too young to make the… decision. This means you would be guilty of statutory rape because you violated the statute declaring the legal age of consent. (MORE)
Even in the state of Wisconsin you will have to tell the name of the babys father. Here a man has made a minor pregnant so the police will come and arrest him.
Answer: . Charles Dickens was twelve at the time of his father's imprisonment for debt in 1824..
Answer . you pray that her parents dont get you in to trouble with the law because it counts as rape, even with concent.
This is a hard question to answer, but given the same situation, I believe that I would support him and her. He is, after all, your son - you love him. It may not be an ideal situation, but it's what you've got. Encourage him to make sensible decisions, but do not try to change his mind about things…. Be there, for the both of them, and recognize the baby for what it is... a true gift. (MORE)
The differences in results are in direct relation to who does what and when. If anyone reports the matters to DHS (Department of Human Services) or CPS (Child Protective Services), and they choose to get involved, charges may be brought against the underage father or mother or both for Sex Wi…th a Minor. What is most often the case in the US is that charges are only brought against the male. "Anyone" in this situation may be the girl or boy, the parents or guardians of the girl or boy, a friend of either, any other family member, the girl's doctor or any of the nursing staff, the hospital social worker, neighbors, strangers on the street, literally anyone. Once the ball starts rolling, however, it typically continues. whomever is charged in the matter will face arrest, trial, conviction, sentencing, and some form of incarceration or conditional release, and will be required to register on the state SOR (Sex Offender Registry) for the proscribed period of time.

No My Sister got pragnet when she was 17 and her boy friend was 16 and nothing happend but now if they borke up then thell half to go to the family court from then on something will happend.
It would take a formal complaint by the pregnant party for an arrest to be made. However, He has broken the law, Many places would arrest him and place him on the sex offenders list. Very illegal, silly and just retarted do it anyways age doesn't matter
In Utah you can get married as young as 15 so long as your parents (both yours and your partner's) appear in person to apply for the marriage license with you. If both you and your partner are at least 18, you do not need a parent's permission. A civil judge can perform the ceremony, or you can have… another approved legal or religious official perform it. If you are under 15, you cannot be married in the State of Utah. There are no laws regarding pregnancies and marriage in Utah. (MORE)

If an underage teen is pregnant does the father of the underage teen have to pay child support or can the underage teen control that?
well yeh you have to give support you got her pregnant for the love of god
If an underage teen is pregnant and the father was paying child support before the teen got pregnant does the father stop paying child support?
The father will be paying (or SHOULD be paying) child support at LEAST until the child turns 18, and could possibly have to pay longer depending on what a judge says. For instance, in some cases if the father is a college graduate, then some courts require them to pay some kind of support if the chi…ld continues through college. (MORE)
Even though you have a child at a young age it doesn't consider you an adult. You still need your parent's consent to do anything if you are under the age of 18 (in some states 17)
No Way He is a classy guy . he would never date a prego grl its gross and it would give him bad rep.!!!
Firstly, are you definitely pregnant? secondly, you need to tell a parent or a trusted adult and from there they will help you with everything you need. And if, for any reason, they don't.. speak to a clinic or anonymous clinic. As for the baby you have 3 choices; keep it have an abortion or adop…tion. (MORE)
yea dumba$$ .. but if her parents are ok with her being preggo then chances are no one will say anything
His dad went to one part of a prison that was meant for extremely poor people, so it really isn't a "prison." His life at the prison was probably better than life outside the prison because in the prison, he could actually eat food, and have the basic needs.
Yes. The father was Richard Henry "Light Horse Harry" Lee, a hero of the Revolution. As a delegate to the Second Continental Congress he had offered the Resolution that led to the Declaration of Independence from Britain. He was a brilliant man but terrible with money. He was involved in one imp…ractical scheme after another. A few of these, such as one for developing land in the vicinity of Washington DC, were merely ahead of their time. Many prominent men of that era were perpetually in debt, owing far more than they could ever repay, and got by only by continually negotiating new loans from their peers. Light Horse Harry Lee died of the lingering effects of a beating he sustained from a mob at the time of the War of 1812. Lee's friend and political ally was a Baltimore newspaper editor. The Baltimore mob got the idea that this editor was pro-British. Lee had gone to his offices to help him defend his business when the mob overran the place and beat him severely. He lived for a time and traveled to the Caribbean, probably to avoid further imprisonment for debt. He was returning by ship when he grew ill, and the ship's crew put him ashore at the Amelia Island plantation of his old Revolutionary comrade, Nathaniel Greene, off the coast of Georgia. Lee died in Greene's house and is buried on the Island. Robert E. Lee visited his father's grave for the first time as a Confederate general. Harry's profligacy cost him the home where Robert was born in Westmoreland County, Virginia, which still stands. This was the ancestral home of the Lees, Stratford Hall. It was Robert's lifelong dream to recover this house, but he was never able to do so. After the house was lost the family went to live with relatives in Fredericksburg. Had Robert not obtained an appointment to West Point he would have had little opportunity for higher education. The traumas of these early days go far to explain aspects of Robert's character. (MORE)
Same rights as an adult. You have the right to be a dad and see your child and pay childsupport.
Yes, but you have to prove that is the father and go thru all the paper work.\n
No, what you do with sexual intercourse is up to you. Unless the guy/girl is 3 years older than you and you are under the age of 18, then its considered statutory rape.
If an underage girl gets pregnant by an underage boy but that boy has to move out of state by law would he be able to stay without his parents consist?
If you're in the US, no. Getting your girlfriend pregnant does not give you any adult rights. If Mom and Dad say you have to move, then you do.
Yes, to put it simple. Regardless of male or female. If you are the legal age then you can be charged. However in most states, there is a "3 year rule" Which for example. Girl is 17 but the guy was 20 and vice versa. (Unless the offense was rape obviously) However in most states the "legal" age to h…ave sex is 16 years. If either party is 16 years of age and he/she can consent to sex, without either party being charged. (MORE)
No-one can force you to do anything, they will try but its all up to you who you tell information too.
You need a guardian of some type. your parents could possibly report you as a runaway & you will need some help with the baby. Try to work things out.
Depends on her age and yours. If she is 14 and you 20, yep you can get locked if caught that is. Just stay away from the under-aged ones. There are plenty of great bj artist over the legal age anyway.
If a girl has reached puberty and has sexual intercourse, she can get pregnant. It is illegal if she is not of the age of consent in the place she lives, and it is not a smart thing to do, but yes, she can.
It will depend on the local laws. In most cases, the parties mustbe at least 16 and have parental permission. Some will allow itwith a court order.
Yes. In addition, he could also be ordered to pay additional support for the grandchild.
Yes. Statutory rape. consent at the age of 16, must be within 36 months of underage individuals age. So yup, you goin' to jail bub.
In order to petition for custody or visitation right by the court you have to establish paternity by a DNA test. Then you can obtain a visitation schedule and also start paying child support.
No. In most of the western world pregnant minors and teen parents have the same parental rights as adults.
